One of Alabama’s most historic roadways is traveling back into the limelight. Byler Road, the first road ever commissioned by the Alabama Legislature, is finally getting its historic due, thanks to $200,000 in funding spearheaded by State Representative Tracy Estes and Alabama Senate Pro-Tem Greg Reed.
